Abstract:
Genetic variability and correlation coefficient were estimated in 60 genotypes of field pea grown in an Randomized Block Design during Rabi 2020-21. Analysis of variance showed significant differences among the genotypes for all the traits studied. The high percentage of PCV and GCV were observed for number of clusters per plant, plant height, seed yield per plant, biological yield per plant, number of primary branches per plant and number of pods per plant. The high estimates of heritability and genetic advance as percentage of mean were found for plant height, number of clusters per plant, number of pods per plant, biological yield per plant, 100-seed weight, protein content and seed yield per plant. Correlation studies revealed that seed yield per plant exhibited highly significant positive correlation with biological yield per plant, 100-seed weight, pod length, number of seeds per pod, number of pods per plant, harvest index and number of cluster per plant at both genotypic and phenotypic levels.
